Shocking youth portrait
4 October 2017 | by beyer-sebastianSee all my reviews

This movie takes some twists I definitely did not expect, which let's it stand out among coming of age movies. Brian does not care what other people think of him, but through carefully written dialogues you learn he is not careless, especially not, when he learns his sister is pregnant.

However I have to agree, the comedy label is a bad joke. This is among the darkest and most tragic movies I have seen, and the fact, that most of the actors are quite unknown lends more realism to this story. Anybody remember the song "Jesus of Suburbia" by Green Day? This is a similar story in movie form. I liked it.
